I’m a little Blue…


So I’m going to devote the rest of this week to posting only Bluetooth related product reviews :o) I have 4 different Bluetooth products in my queue right now:

Cardo Systems Scala 700 Headset
Jawbone Headset
Etymotic ety8 In-The-Ear Bluetooth Earphones
Tekkeon ezSpeak ET6000 Handsfree Speakerphone

I’m not entirely sure that I can manage to bust them all out in the next 4 nights (I do have a life you know… Ok, no I don’t…), but I’m going to give it my best shot. I don’t have the review order completely worked out, but tonight it’s the Cardo Systems Scala 700 headset.

Here’s a question for all of you… I’m curious; how many of you wear your Bluetooth headset outside of a vehicle?

    My place is in a poor reception area so it makes most sense to leave my Treo 680 in one place and use a bluetooth headset. I tried this using my Sony Ericsson HBH-610A and it worked out well for a while. The headset then started dropping calls and I abandoned it. Now the Palm Treo cable is always within reach till I find a solid BT headset.

    I greatly look forward to your reviews – and whether or not the Etymotic one is worth the expense. All the best Julie!

    I usually take off the bluetooth headset upon exiting my car. However, I do put it on when I need my hand for something.

    my motorola H700 is car-only…but my Oakley O-ROKR is my everywhere device.

    BTW…im looking forward to your jawbone review, because of its touted superior noise-supression technology.

    I dont think any of us gadgeteers/geeks have a life…thats why feel the need to be occupied by gadgets and toys so we don’t go postal/nuts and start shooting everyone, hahahahha.

    I wear mine at home when I’m doing something where I need both hands.

    I find it a little odd that when I go visit my local Walmart that I will see soccer Mom’s and Dad’s running around the store wearing Bluetooth headsets. But then me, the supposed queen of gadgets, is too shy to wear one in public like that. ;o)

    A couple days out of the week, I need to visit a few different sites in the area for work. I’m usually at those sites for about 30 minutes, each, so I don’t bother taking off my headset.

    Also, if there’s a conference call that I need to dial into, I usually take it with my headset. That way I can type, take notes, or just surf the web while on the call.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that I wished more headsets could be connected to more than one phone (or other Bt device) at the same time, like the Plantronics Discovery 640. I love the MultiPoint function on the headset, because during the week, I carry my own phone (Treo 700p) and my work phone (Motorola i870).

    As far as I am concerned… as soon as I leave da home in my car, da bluetooth headset definitely stays on me air. Whether it be shopping or just casual hang out. Yes going to somebody’s place or gym or office, that is when I do take it off, but it does tend to stay normally !

    Heh, the Sony 970 is a great bluetooth earphone for listening to “wireless” music.

    It uses bluetooth to sort of stream music over from your phone to your earpiece just like the ETY8
